Farm Fresh Omelettes

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 1


  • 3 eggs
  • oil/grease
  • green peppers
  • onions
  • mushrooms
  • cheese
  • sausage/bacon/ham
  • salt
  • pepper


  • 1. Start a 10 inch non-stick frying pan warming on the stove with low heat. Add oil, depending on the non-stickiness of your pan.
  • 2. Crack and scramble 3 eggs into a small bowl.
  • 3. Add the eggs to the pan.
  • 4. Let them cook for a few minutes without stirring. The time will vary depending on your heat.
  • 5. When your eggs are mostly cooked through (a little soft and runny on top, but when you push a spatula under it, it will hold it's shape), slip a spatula under the circular egg shape and in one smooth motion, flip it entirely over.
  • 6. Leave the heat on for another minute or so while you add the toppings.
  • 7. You can add whatever you want in whatever quantities. Add it to just one half of the egg circle.
  • 8. Fold the omelette in half and put a lid on the pan to melt the cheese through.


Making omelettes is something that gets easier with time...and in our house, no one minded while I practiced since it involved bacon and melted cheese. ???? (Sometimes that flipping part ended up not entirely circular...)
A non-stick pan of any sort is absolutely necessary. Even with bacon grease or other oil, my older, supposedly-non-stick-but-wearing-out pans do not work out very well.
I keep the heat as low as possible. Sometimes I'll turn it up a tiny bit to speed along meal prep, but be careful...too much and you have a toasty brownish layer on the bottom, which isn't overly delicious.
I have 4 10in frying pans on each of the 4 burners of the stove to make enough for our family of 7 for one meal (and so it doesn't take me 2 hours to make a meal...)  Using more than one pan to prepare a meal for a family of any size is definitely recommended.

I ordered two of these recently, due to my older pans losing their non-stick-ness.  I’ll keep you posted on how well they work. 😉 

I prefer the more sturdy spatulas for making omelettes. It helps be able to flip the egg over without ripping it.
